Advanced Package Assembly and Test Services
With more than 60,000 square feet of Class 10,000 (ISO 7) and Class 1k (ISO 6) clean-room space, Tektronix Component Solutions' domestic manufacturing facility is suited for prototyping and manufacturing at all scales. We support a variety of IC assembly and hybrid technologies, including wire bonding, flip chip ball grid arrays (FCBGA), multi-chip modules, and various other configurations. Our flexible manufacturing space and diverse base of IC packaging and hybrid technologies helps make us an ideal partner for building high-performance, high-complexity devices for mission-critical defense and industrial applications.
For projects requiring wafer processing (e.g., wafer bumping, thinning, dicing), we maintain relationships with a variety of domestic and international industry suppliers and offer supply chain management capabilities to enable a turnkey solution for your microelectronic parts.
Die Attach and Package Sealing Capabilities
The Tektronix Component Solutions technical team has successfully completed hundreds of interposer and package designs for a wide range of ASIC packages; from large, high density flip-chip ASICs (13,000 interconnects) to high speed flip chip MCMs (35GHz). Flip-chip assembly is performed in-house with qualified assembly processes for bump pitches down to 148 microns. Tektronix flip-chip assembly expertise also includes proven material sets for ultra-low-K dielectric ASICs and assembly experience with Global Foundries (formerly IBM) with both 32 nm and 17 nm processes and TSMC 40 nm process.
For basic die attach requirements, Tektronix Component Solutions utilizes solder or epoxy bonding methodologies. For more advanced requirements, such as hermetic packaging, Tektronix Component Solutions can employ eutectic die attach techniques. Additionally, we offer flip chip assembly and wire bonding services for a wide variety of package configurations. Our package sealing capabilities include traditional epoxy and seam seal with electroless or electrolytic plating for hermetic devices.
As packaging requirements expand beyond traditional wire-bonding and flip-chip, Tektronix Component Solutions is developing state-of-the-art packaging and test techniques for 2.5D and 3D packaging architectures.
Since our inception, IC package test has been an integral part of the support we provide Tektronix and our capabilities in this area remain a core competency that leverages experienced personnel and capable equipment. From wafer test to in-line and final test, we have the IC package test solutions to verify components and modules are operating at required performance levels.
In the case of turn-key IC package or hybrid development projects, our test development team works closely with our designers to optimize the design of each package for testability. By designing for testability, we are better able to validate the performance of assembled devices before delivery.
We offer analog, digital and mixed-signal test services to validate the performance of a wide variety of parts. With time and frequency domain measurements from DC to > 50 GHz and swept frequency measurements up to 110 GHz, our high-speed test capabilities are ideal for parts destined for high-performance defense applications.
The test of custom, high-performance parts often goes beyond just the ability to electrically verify operation and includes additional test restrictions (e.g., zero ambient light). Our ability and willingness to develop custom test systems and fixtures to support strict test requirements sets us apart in the assembly and test services industry.
Tektronix Component Solutions applies lean manufacturing principles throughout our facility and is focused on continuous improvement to remove waste, streamline processes and ensure that assembly activities are providing value to our customers. To support this goal, our manufacturing lean cells are constantly evaluated on strict standards of safety, quality, delivery, inventory and productivity (+QDIP). +QDIP metrics are clearly communicated at each cell by a visual management system, allowing managers and operators to quickly assess performance at any given time. With these metrics as a guide, our manufacturing team consistently seeks to pro-actively enhance the design and flow of lean cells to improve performance (e.g. takt time, yield, throughput). This focus on continuous improvement helps to proactively reduce risk and ensure quality and consistent delivery.
